Bug Description

I'm trying to use bindwood on karmic alpha6 (up to date as of yesterday) but the firefox error console is reporting:

Bindwood: Problem saving new bookmark to Couch: message: 'Bindwood.couch is undefined', reason: 'undefined', description: 'undefined', error: 'undefined'

Followed by a slew of other errors, which unfortunately seem to have been pushed out of the console buffer.

Hi, Brian.

Thanks for reporting this. Can you do two things to help me diagnose this?

  - Install Console2, a replacement error console for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/1815

  - Run Firefox from the terminal, with the following environment variable set:

    $ BINDWOOD_DEBUG=1 firefox &

That will output quite a bit more to the console. Console2 will allow you to select multiple lines. If you can open the console immediately upon starting up Firefox, you will get a lot of diagnostic information. If you can attach that info to this bug, it'll help me understand why the Bindwood.couch instance is getting undefined.

Before you attach the diagnostic output, please elide the line: "Starting process with Couch environment: ..."

Before I do this, I should mention, that I appear to be afflicted by bug
435943
. Is that as likely a cause of this problem as I think it is?

Interesting. However, if Bindwood can't get hold of the desktop couch
information, it *should* be quietly not doing anything. Aha! The error
you were receiving was due to the bookmark modification event handlers,
not the main bulk of Bindwood's operations. Those aren't (currently)
excepted from acting when DC can't be found.

Thanks! I'll make sure that when DC can't be found, we also unsubscribe
Bindwood from those event notifications.

This particular error was the result of Bindwood being unable to connect to Couch, but still registered for events. It now unregisters itself if it can't attach to the CouchDB instance.
